Covid-19: Germany’s largest pork factory can be reopened | Instant News

Certain parts of the largest slaughtering plant in Germany are permitted to reopen. That means that the end of the closing 4 weeks is now almost over for the slaughterhouse by the Tönnies in Rheda-Wiedenbrück, the state of North Rhine Westphalia.

The massacre was closed because more than 1,500 employees were found to be infected with Covid-19. The partial revocation of the closure, communicated by the Rheda-Wiedenbrück city council, was the result of coordinating talks between all the authorities and the company and mayor Theo Mettenborg.

Blood cutting and processing

In short the size means that for Reisinger’s subsidiaries (slaughter, 597 employees) and Acontex (blood processing, 7 employees), the closure is lifted. The two divisions are separated from the others in the factory – both in terms of distance and in terms of type of work. Above, a proper climate control system has been guaranteed here. In addition, the blood processing division area only employs a small number of employees, which is why the city government thinks the risk of infection is relatively low.
